Witt stated she is for efficiency and fairness for taxpayers and existing UG employees. Her priorities include police and fire safety, and respect and fairness for everyone.

“We will focus on the residents and small businesses that have been loyal to WyCo and stuck with our community,” she stated.

Janice (Grant) Witt is a candidate for Unified Government mayor and CEO.

Witt ran previously for mayor in 2017. She said if elected, she would represent the people and small businesses in Kansas City, Kansas.

Witt was the first person to file for mayor this year.

She is known for operating a food pantry and assistance center, the Reola Grant Center for Family Life Development, in Wyandotte County for many years.

“For too long we have been told that taxes and our BPU bills must be raised to support inefficient government,” Witt said. “This attitude by the current administration has destroyed opportunities, health, and hope for families. Our community needs new independent leadership free of the back room influences of Doug Bach and David Alvey. Change is happening all over America and we need change in the Dotte as well. No more sweet deals on the backs of the taxpayers.”

Witt stated she is for efficiency and fairness for taxpayers and existing UG employees. Her priorities include police and fire safety, and respect and fairness for everyone.
